, at his final appearance before our committee as secretary of defense, secretary panetta warned us of a -- quote -- readiness crisis that would impair our forces' ability to respond to crises. sequestration will also prevent investments needed to protect us in emerging areas of concern such as cybersecurity. it will threaten our ability to keep faith with the most important national security asset that we possess, the men and women of our military and their families. and secretary panetta has pointed out that sequestration's ills will not be limited to defense. in a speech last week, he said -- quote -- "it's not just defense, it's education, loss of teachers. it's childcare. it's about health care. 700,000 women and children will no longer receive nutritional assistance. it's about food safety, he said, it's about law enforcement, it's about airport safety. so today we're introducing the cut loopholes act to protect those and other important priorities. over the last 50 years, federal revenues have averaged approximately 18% of g.d.p. over that time, our budget has been balanced
